Send a fax from memory
You can scan a black-and-white fax into memory and then send the fax from memory. This feature is
useful if the fax number you are trying to reach is busy or temporarily unavailable. The printer scans
the originals into memory and sends them once it is able to connect to the receiving fax machine.
After the printer scans the pages into memory, you can immediately remove the originals from the
document feeder tray or scanner glass.
NOTE: You can only send a black-and-white fax from memory.
